Looking Ahead…

My hopes and prayers for our church: Well… no pressure at all! Just write one last article for First Connections which summarizes everything you have experienced in the last forty-one years. Of course, that’s impossible! Know that I have enough wonderful memories, experiences, and feelings to last the remainder of my life. As I say…

Music Notes

In last Sunday’s sermon, Tripp Martin mentioned that some of us have likely already broken our New Year’s Resolutions. Indeed, true! But, perhaps there is time to make yet another resolution that you might keep… Sing in the Sanctuary Choir. I know it is easy to wait “until I have more time”, or “until the…

Looking Ahead…

Christmas is Here! Well, not quite… but the Sanctuary Choir has begun rehearsing its Advent/Christmas Music! If you enjoy singing and would like to get “in the spirit of Christmas” than you are cordially invited to participate in the Sanctuary Choir. We rehearse each Thursday from 6:45-8:15 PM and childcare is provided. Now is a…

Looking Ahead…

You may have already read “Reflections” by our new pastor, Dr. Tripp Martin. His arrival surely fulfills much of my “Looking Ahead.” Tripp and I have had the opportunity to spend several hours together both before and since he was called as our next pastor, and I must tell you I am so excited! One…

Looking Ahead…

For almost a year each member of Auburn First Baptist Church has been asked to keep the Pastor Search Committee in their thoughts and prayers. In addition, in every corporate worship service, we have remembered the PSC and have prayed for them and on their behalf asking God for wisdom and guidance as they sought…

College Choir: Through the Years

When in our music God is glorified, And adoration leaves no room for pride, It is as though the whole creation cried, Alleluia! You can download and listen to selections from College Choir concerts over the years in the form of MP3 audio files.   Tour year of the recording is denoted in parentheses. Praise Ye…

Looking Ahead…

Today, I hope you will allow me to look back prior to looking ahead. Our 40th Reunion was, in my opinion, Glorious! The returning alumni and their families had a wonderful experience visiting with each other, visiting with you, worshiping together on Sunday, and enjoying that “feast of a meal” you provided following the service.…

Looking Ahead…

Today, prior to looking ahead, I would like to “look back” on the past three Sundays. GMO Sunday was a wonderful combination of the spoken word and the sung word. Ronnie’s Brewer’s message and Kate Campbell’s music fit so perfectly together, reminding us of our Christian duty to care for the “least of these.” (By…

Dale Peterson’s 40th Anniversary Celebration

On June 23, the AFBC family is invited to join in a day of celebration as we honor Dale’s 40 years of ministry (1973–2013). We will honor him in the worship service and join together for lunch following morning worship to share in a time of thanksgiving and reflection. Dale joined AFBC in 1973 when…
